Stress is poisonous.
Stress is a killer.
The more I reflect on it, the more I perceive that stress happens because you want to be in control; because you’re afraid to lose control—unwilling to let the Holy Spirit lead.
I think the Abraham paradigm is a powerful way to attain the rest of the Lord.
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.
~Hebrews 11:8 NIV
Abraham didn’t care about the destination.
He didn’t care about the process.
He cared only about the One leading him; about the LORD.
He was content to just follow the LORD regardless of how the journey proceeded; or where it led to.
If you are not preoccupied with the destination, nor with the process, but rather with the LORD, you will enjoy a rest-full and stress-free life.
